Let Guests Live It Up Large

If you’re planning an outdoor event, consider renting a tent to house a dance floor, dining room, or whatever else you’ll have at your party. Special Events provides large outdoor tents in Northern California and the Bay Area, with superior customer service.

No One-Size-Fits-All

Wedding tents, corporate event tents, festival tents and graduation tents (to name a few) all require different kinds of outdoor tents, depending on the projected size of your gathering. Our myriad selection of tent rentals can fit any occasion of any size.

Small Events

For small parties outside, our standard frame canopy outdoor tents are constructed with an aluminum frame, without center poles. Though these tents are small, your guests will have an unobstructed view of all the goings-on underneath the canopy. Without the center pole, you’ll also have increased space for tables, chairs, and food service.

Medium-to-Large Events

If you’re looking to accommodate more people than standard frame canopy tents can cover, request a pole and tension tent. They come in small and large sizes and are sure to provide enough space for all your partygoers. Pole tents may be the ideal option for evening corporate parties or outdoor weddings.

Large, Long-Term Tent Rental

Clearspan structure tents are ideal for large, outdoor events that last multiple days. These tent rentals are more structured than standard canopies or pole tents and can stand up against days of strong winds and heavy rains. They make excellent rain contingency plans for wedding receptions and commercial areas for festivals.

In addition, large tents offer usable space for vendors and commercial buildings. You’ll be able to manage your area much easier inside a tent than outside without a clear layout.

The Attendance Factor

Before you can choose the type of outdoor tent rental you’ll need, make sure to estimate how many people will attend your event. If you’re unsure, our team can help you decide how much space you’ll need. With 30+ years’ experience in event planning, we know all the tips and tricks to a successful party. When determining the perfect size for your party tent rental, consider the following:

  • Food service: A formal dinner needs more space than a cocktail party, and buffet-style dining will need to use space differently than a traditionally served meal.
  • Entertainment: If you’re planning on dancing as the main entertainment for your event, make sure to budget space for an expansive dance floor. The last thing you want is for your attendees to feel cramped while trying to let loose.
  • Location: Make sure to account for the size restrictions of your location. The venue you choose for your event may not have extensive flat space. You’ll want to be sure you have enough flat land to support the large tent rental of your choosing.

Accessorize with Drapes, Linens and More

Special Events is here to provide any comforts and luxuries you and your guests desire. Now that you’ve settled on a size and variety for your outdoor canopy rental, it’s time to get down to the details. We have several items with which you can accessorize your large party tent rental. Opt for decorative pieces like flags and garlands, or, for more formal wedding tents and graduation tents, increase the sophistication of your event with lavish drapes and soft linens.

Consider Bay Area Weather

Don’t leave your guests in the summer heat or outside in the cold. Our installers can provide heating and cooling options. Bay Area and Northern California weather is not always reliable, so you don’t want to be left outside on the off chance it rains. If you choose to rent a tent, your guests, the food, and any artwork and equipment will remain dry even if it’s raining. High winds are also a factor.
